For over 60 years the Sutherland Ink Rub Tester 2000™ has been recognized as the industries standard for testing abrasion resistance. Today, the Sutherland Ink Rub Tester 2000™ now offers 4 speeds, allowing the customer even greater flexibility and the Danilee brand has an established reputation for providing an exceptionally qualified rub testing product.
The SUTHERLAND® 2000 “Dual” Tester provides the same robust functionality of a single tester while adding the ability to test two specimens side by side. This allows exact duplication of speed and resistance when comparing test results simultaneously. When a large amount of testing is to be completed, the SUTHERLAND® 2000 “Dual” Tester provides a timely application as well as maintaining a reasonable budget short of requiring two separate testing units. It also provides more flexibility within the test; for example you can run a test using a 2-lb and 4-lb weight at the same time or different receptors on each weight to compare how different abrasive surfaces affect the test specimen. Each SUTHERLAND® 2000 “Dual” Tester comes with two (2) 2-lb and two (2) 4-lb weights, a scoring fixture, and two (2) sets of replacement pads.
The Sutherland Ink Rub Tester 2000 is a motor-driven abrasion testing instrument for moving a weighted test strip over a printed specimen through an arc. The tester motor has four speeds: The first speed is 21 cycles per minute (half the speed of the older models) which will make the “wet” tests and tests using under 5 strokes easier to perform. The second speed is 42 cycles per minute, the third speed is 85 cycles per minute (the same as the older models), and the fourth speed is faster at 106 cycles per minute. The exceptional design of the tester enables abrasion testing procedure customization options for a customer’s product while maintaining the ability to reproduce a procedure completed by an older model unit
